5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: FAU students are required to take a safety course regarding heath and safety and how to prevent or deal with sexual assaults.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: I believe it is quite a safe campus and there are many areas to report if you feel unsafe. There are poles with emergency buttons every block or so to press if you feel unsafe and a cop will show up instantly. I have never felt unsafe, personally.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There has not been any serious safety issues ever since I started attending FAU so this university is a safe school.

View student contributors

FAU has many services to offer in the ways of health and safety. In terms of health services, FAU has resources for after-hour emergencies, a wellness task force, and an AIDS committee, in addition to the basic health care the University provides its students.

The department of Environmental Health and Safety has the goal of providing the safest environment possible for FAU's students, staff, and faculty. This department goes above and beyond with its services, offering students programs involving the use of animals on campus, biological and chemical safety, driving and boating safety, and stormwater management. You name it—FAU probably has an answer to it.
